Anderson Silva upset a lot of people – and his boss – in his last fight. Chael Sonnen is a fighter who, from what we’re being told, won’t allow any boredom or show boating from Silva. Your UFC 117 predictions begin now!
The Jon Fitch vs. Thiago Alves is the one I’m most looking forward to. Fitch beat Alves in their first fight, but Alves isn’t the same fighter he was then. He also hasn’t fought since recently under going brain surgery. I’m still going to take Alves here, most likely setting uo Alves vs. Fitch III as the main event of an Ultimate Fight Night some time next year.
Clay Guida vs. Rafael Dos Anjos is a coin toss, and one where Guida beat Anjos six time to four. Yes, I actually flip a coin. Guida wins.
It will be his toughest opponent to date, but I think Roy Nelson is going over Junior dos Santos, setting him up for the winner of the Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez fight in the fall.
I don’t like Matt Hughes, but he seems to not only have the number of the Gracie family’s prized pupils, but also of the Gracie’s themselves. Ricardo Almeida received his black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from Renzo Gracie. It might go to a decision, but Hughes is coming out the victor/
Anderson Silva over Chael Sonnen, hopefully in more dramatic fashion than Anderson’s last fight. Who’s next?
